At age 22, John D. Flathead founded Flathead Industries, a company devoted to the creation of other companies, which it would then sell off to FrobozzCo International. Within three years, FI had an annual income of 80,000,000 zorkmids. Eventually, the conglomerate decided to buy FI itself, renaming it the Frobozz Magic Company Company, and adding it to its more than 17,000 other subsidiaries. John D. became one of FrobozzCo’s 39,000 vice-presidents.
